No Cuvee da Capo was made in 2009, but the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is composed of 80-85% Grenache and the rest a field blend of the other permitted varietals (Syrah, Mourvedre, Muscardin, Terret Noir, Counoise, Vaccarese, etc.). It is fashionable to compare the newest Capo with a previous vintage, and for me, the 2010 resembles 2007 more than their 2003, 2000 or 1998. The stunningly rich 2010 has close to 16% natural alcohol, and will be bottled after spending 18 months in old wood foudres. Notions of ripe figs, kirsch liqueur, cedar, Christmas fruitcake, smoked meats, charcuterie and beef blood are present in this staggeringly complex, rich, full-throttle, massive, intense wine. Drink it over the next 20-30 years.

Compared to the '09 Cuvée Réservée, the 2010 Domaine du Pégaü Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée da Capo, also tasted out of foudre, is squeaky clean, showing a dense, mineral, meat, and earthy aromatic profile, serious concentration and density, and a full-bodied, massively structured and classic mouth feel. Very unevolved and structured, this beauty will require patience and should be cellared for a minimum of 7-8 years.

Exotically perfumed, expansive bouquet evokes candied red and dark berries, Indian spices, potpourri and woodsmoke. Deep, broad and intense, offering sappy raspberry and boysenberry flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Clings with outstanding tenacity, finishing with smoky spice and floral notes.
